    While the game mechanics are solid enough, the Street methods and ideals simply don't work when transferred basketball to American football. Gamebreakers are now far too effective, basically giving guaranteed points rather than the more balanced advantage of "NBA Street." [Feb 2004, p.117]
  2. There's plenty of promise here, but it's buried under horribly unbalanced, cheap gameplay that all but ruins the overall experience.
  3. Taking the pigskin to the asphalt is a novel idea and makes for a fast and fun game of arcade football. It's not nearly as slick and addictive as its sister franchise NBA Street, though.
  4. The real weakness of NFL Street, however, is the same criticism levelled at Madden just a few months ago - that completing a pass or finding a run through the defence is too arbitrary to judge.
  5. Comparing NFL Street to Madden is like comparing "Redcard" to "Pro Evolution Soccer," besides the fact that both games are played with an oval pigskin ball there is little else in common.
  6. A fun, simplistic diversion, especially with a group of friends. However, once you've seen all the style moves it doesn't have the staying power of much deeper football games like EA's own "Madden NFL 2004."

    This game was one of the best games I ever played for the Gamecube. The more I look back on it, the more I laugh. When I played this game IThis game was one of the best games I ever played for the Gamecube. The more I look back on it, the more I laugh. When I played this game I was just a little kid and thinking that football was how it was in this game. I hadn't played madden, I never watched football, and I just didn't expect much to be honest. This game really led to some serious competitions with my cousins and brothers though. We would play this game all of the time and we all loved the drafting system that they had in the game. We would get so hyped for the simple things like finding legends in the drafts and getting interceptions and gamebreakers. This game was far from perfect but that's just how a lot of games were around this time. The thing that makes me want to give this game such a high score though is the fact that I played it so much and time would fly by so fast when I would play it. Full Review »
